Indications
AZICOX-2 (200 mg) is a product that combines a bactericidal antibiotic drug from the group of macrolides - Azithromycin, and a non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug with selective inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) - Meloxicam. Azithromycin is a modern antibiotic with, in addition to a wide range of action, pharmacokinetic characteristics that allow high intracellular concentrations and prolonged stay in tissues, thus promoting therapeutic results with a shorter treatment period.
Meloxicam selectively blocks COX-2, promoting anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-exudative activity with minimum gastrolesive or ulcerogenic effects. In addition to these effects, Meloxicam also inhibits infiltration of leukocytes in the inflamed tissue and prevents bone and cartilage destruction that occurs in bone and cartilage degenerative processes. AZICOX-2 (200 mg) promotes antibiotic therapy of wide spectrum, combating the cause of infections while treating inflammation and its effects.
